We The Party

We haven't mentioned this project in a while since we posted the trailer and first synopsis, besides the fact that it's screening at the Pan African Film Festival this weekend. Well now, Mario Van Peebles' We The Party will also screen simultaneously on the east coast in Boston at the Roxbury International film festival. Although different time zones, both will screen tomorrow 2/19 at 7pm.

The Hip Hop, coming of age comedy stars Michael Jai White, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Snoop Dogg, Melvin Van Peebles, Tiny Lister among other rappers and musicians.

Here's a full synopsis:

“We the Party”is a colorful, cutting-edge, multicultural comedy about a group of teenagers coming of age during America’s first presidency of an African American man.  “Teenagers are at thecenter of a seismic cultural shift,” says writer/director Mario Van Peebles. “Their world is changing fast, from their music to their dancing, jerking, twerking, skateboarding, dating and facebooking. Thug life is old school now and, for some, smart is the new gangsta!”

Filmed on location in one of Los Angeles’ tougher areas, the fictional “Baldwin Hills High School” comprises a broad cross-section of teens from different races and backgrounds – from gang-bangers sagging, to the skinny jeans and skateboard swag crowd, to the upper-class entitlement kids of Baldwin Hills.

The movie chronicles the adventures of five tightly-knit friends as they plot to up their game, lose their virginity, out-maneuver the school bully, and take the girls of their dreams to the prom. Tensions mount when it’s suspected one of the students stole the prom money. With prom about to be cancelled and police on the scene, the students turn on each other…only to learn things are seldom what they appear.

Set against the backdrop of the latest music and dancing, “We the Party”features Snoop Dogg, YG, The New Boyz, The Rej3ctz, The Pink Dollaz,Mario Van Peebles, Michael Jai White, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Tiny Lister, Melvin Van Peebles, Mandela Van Peebles, Simone Battle, Moises Arias, Orlando Brown and Quincy Brown.
